Today we are going to take a look at one of the most unconventional watches from atelier Panerai - the Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio.
The Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic in steel, also known more simply as the PAM00524, is a great choice for enthusiasts of Panerai’s iconic Luminor case and demanding Paneristi that want something a little more special to stand out from the traditional aesthetic and functions.
For the ones not familiar with a Flyback function, it lets the wearer reset and start the chronograph caliber without first stopping and then reseting and starting it again.
Pushing the Flyback button is enough to reset the chronograph to zero and after which the chronograph seconds hand will immediately resume timing without any interruption.
This is especially useful for timing quick continuous events, like lap times.
In terms of design, the case is based on Panerai’s very popular 44 mm Luminor 1950 case. Thanks to its bold cushion shape design and its instantly recognizable crown-protecting device, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio is without a doubt sizable, and has noticeable wrist presence but it doesn't reflect on everyday comfor.
The sleek bezel is polished, while other parts of the case are delicately brushed, which makes a nice contrast. The first thing that strikes eyes is the bright blue chronograph seconds hand. It also lets other Paneristi know immediately that this Panerai is in a way special.
And unlike other Panerai timepieces, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio has markers for the individual minutes, which is necessary for the renowed and practical chronograph function. The individual minute markers, as well as the larger hour markers, and hours, minutes and running seconds hands are all rendered in matching ecru, which gives the dial a warm and nostalgic aura.
Even the date on the black with luminous Arabic numerals is printed in the same ecru color, which is a nice and thoughtful touch. Under the 12 o’clock markers, it simply points out Luminor Panerai inscription and above the 6 o’clock marker, it just subtly specify Flyback sign, leaving proud owners in no doubt of the watch’s performance and functions.
Enabling impeccable performance is one of the Panerai’s finest caliber - P.9100, manufacture first automatic chronograph movement, now with useful Flyback function.
Executed entirely by Panerai, it comprises 302 components in absolute harmony with Glucydur® balance and Incabloc® anti-shock device added. It also consist 37 shiny jewels, beats at 4Hz, and features two barrels for 3 days (or 72 hours) of power reserve.
